Saw this in the Seattle P-I Food section yesterday, anyone tried any?
I remember hearing Jim Minion mentioning Korobuta Pork in his catering biz. The article says this is a meat made for low and slow cooking.

Let me know when you get one, I'll come up and help you eat it.

The article lead me to "The French Laundry" in Yountville. Now that looks like a restaurant and they serve this pork product. But since the minimum denomination of gift certificate you can buy is $250.00 I don't think I will be dining at this establishment anytime soon (or ever).

I'll have to make an exploratory mission to the U District Saturday Market. I'll probably never eat in those restaurants.

At $25.00 per pound I think I'll stick to good old fashion regular pork!! $25 can buy a few nice "Normal" butts..but only a couple pork chops of this "Curly Pig"

Did any of you go the market to try the meat? I'm attaching a photo of some meat from a sow.

That restaurant was shown on the food network show about duff, the cake guy, I guess it was where he got hired right after graduating the cia. Supposed to be one of the best in the USofA...

A very ugly pig. But I agree with the article pork have change over the years, it much too lean. A pig need to be raise where they can free range eat slop.

I agree that most of the fat (and flavor) has been bred out of our domestic oinkers over the last few years . Is pork fat healthy? No, but thats where the flavor is! And I want to have the flavor!!! At $25.00............:confused:
